ANA will Start Serving Famous IPPUDO Ramen in Premium Economy

~New "ANA Exclusive" flavor especially developed for ANA customers ~


TOKYO, November 22, 2017 - ANA, Japan's largest and only 5-star airline, and IPPUDO, the world's renown ramen brand since 1985, are proud to announce the expansion of their partnership.

Starting December 2017, "TRITON Noodle Soup," an ANA and IPPUDO collaboration ramen, will be enriching ANA Premium Economy's wide variety snack menu.

From 2013, ANA has been serving IPPUDO ramen in First and Business Class as a snack option onboard. This collaboration with IPPUDO is highly received by all passengers around the world.

The new ANA exclusive ramen in Premium Economy contains specially selected noodles that blend well with the perfectly harmonized mild chicken and succulent pork broth. On top are the texture-rich cabbage, onions, agedama tempura batter, and scent of yuzu to complete the light dish.

We chose the soup of the ramen with chicken and pork intentionally, since when translating chicken and pork into Japanese, it will be "Tori(chicken) Ton(pork)", which rhymes with our company color, "TRITON" blue. This triton blue is also reflected in the ramen cup design. We hope that this humor and ramen will make the passengers have a heartwarming experience onboard.

ANA and IPPUDO hope many people will enjoy our ANA exclusive flavor ramen and their experience onboard.
